Warm and Beautiful Like Kannon Bodhisattva

Kannon changes Himself into thirty-three forms

And saves all people from their sufferings

Since the Great Merciful and Compassionate Kannon

Is the virtuous body of awakening to the Lotus Sutra,

When we recite the Odaimoku and have faith in the Eternal Buddha,

We become as beautiful as the Kannon.

And we can be of service to others with a warm and gentle mind.

The Venerable Rev. Nichiyu Iwama, 90th Archbishop of Minobu-san
